Dr. Sir Harold "Harry" W. Kroto, one of the co-recipients of the 1996 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, now teaches at FSU. Dr. Kroto is a Francis Eppes Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry.
Kroto gives a highly popular series of public lectures, visiting area schools to promote science education and has taught a graduate class on interstellar chemistry. He comes to FSU from the University of Sussex in England, where he taught for 37 years.
Kroto said his move to FSU allows him to "not only open up some new research avenues" but "also maintain the considerable momentum that (his research has) built up over the past 10 years in my international educational outreach work." Dr. Kroto, through the Vega Trust website, aims to create a broadcast platform for the science, engineering and technology (SET) communities, so enabling them to communicate on all aspects of their fields of expertise using the exciting new TV and Internet opportunities.
An ardent advocate for science education, Kroto devotes much of his time and energy to promoting careers in science among young people. "He'll be a very visible guy" on campus, said Alan G. Marshall, a professor of chemistry, in an interview with Chemical & Engineering News. "The plan is for him to give at least one lecture to every freshman at Florida State during their career, so they'll get a chance to see him."
Kroto's Nobel Prize was based on his co-discovery of buckminsterfullerene, a form of pure carbon better known as "buckyballs." The extraordinary molecule consists of 60 carbon atoms arranged as a spheroid, in a pattern exactly matching the stitching on soccer balls. The configuration reminded Kroto of the geodesic domes designed by the late inventor/architect Buckminster Fuller, hence the name "buckminsterfullerines."
Kroto is the second Nobelist (with J. Robert Schrieffer of the National Magnetic Field Laboratory) now serving on the FSU faculty. Others to serve at FSU were Konrad Bloch, human sciences; James Buchanan, economics; Paul Dirac, physics; and Robert Sanderson Mulliken, chemical physics.
In 2001, Kroto won the Royal Society's prestigious Michael Faraday Award. The award is given annually to a scientist who has done the most to further public communication of science, engineering or technology in the United Kingdom.
Prof. Eduard Llobet is the director of the research center in Materials Engineering and micro / nano systems (EMAS), which aims to transfer and training in the field of new materials and micro / nano systems, especially those related development of new technologies for application in the fields of sustainable chemistry, environment, health, energy and communications.
After graduating in Telecom Engineering (UPC), since 1993 he is professor in the Department of Electronic Engineering, Universitat Rovira i Virgili. He obtained his doctorate degree from the UPC in 1997.
Prof. Llobet has published over 163 articles in journals, he is co-author of 8 chapters of international books and has presented more than 200 contributions in international conferences.
Prof. Axel Lorke received his PhD in Experimental Physics in 1991 from the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitat (LMU) Munich. He worked as a PostDoc at the University of Tokyo, the University of California, Santa Barbara, and the LMU Munich, where he also received his ‘Habilitation’. Since the year 2000 he has been a Full Professor (C4) for Experimental Physics at the University of Duisburg-Essen. His work focuses on the electronic and optical properties nano-structures and low-dimensional semiconductors. Starting in 2004 he has been coordinator of the Collaborative Research Centre ‘Nanoparticles from the Gas Phase’,funded by the German Research Foundation. He is co-founder and presently Director of the ‘Center for NanoIntegration Duisburg-Essen’ (CeNIDE), which represents about 35 research groups working in the nanosciences with a total of about 200 scientists.
Lorke is author and co-author of 4 patents and 125 refereed publications with a total of about 4000 citations.
Dr Alexander Mozalev was born in Minsk, Belarus (USSR) in 1962. He received the BSc in Engineering from the Minsk Radioengineering Institute (MRTI) in 1985, the MSc and PhD (CSc) in Engineering (Solid State Electronics) from the Belarusian State University of Informatics and Radioelectronics (BSUIR) in 1990 and 1993 respectively.
Following graduation, he was employed by MRTI (1985) and then BSUIR (1995) where he started interested in applied electrochemistry, mostly for forming nanoporous anodic films on aluminium and nanostructured oxide films on a range of transition metals. He was one of the Soviet scientists who discovered the phenomenon of field-assisted growth of self-organized metal-oxide nanostructures resulting from smart anodizing of thin-film metal bilayers (1984), published the first report disclosing the method concept (1986) and has contributed significantly to the conception development till now. During his 25-year employment at MRTI-BSUIR, Dr Mozalev was involved in a variety of investigations and developed a number of advanced electrochemistry-based technologies for electronic passives, multilevel interconnections of CMOS VLSI, self-assembled nano-cathodes for FED displays, LED structures based on porous alumina with embedded organic luminophors, alumina membranes and separators for Li-metal batteries, nanostructured active layers for micromachined gas sensors.
Since June 2011, Dr Mozalev has been employed as a senior researcher at Brno University of Technology (BUT) and joined the Central European Institute of Technology (CEITEC) in the Czech Republic where he is currently leading a group formed to develop next generation solid state devices via electrochemistry-based approaches. In this capacity, he has been involved in the formation and investigation self-organized 3-D nanofilms consisting of metals, semiconductors and mixtures via a blend of electrochemical and physical deposition techniques for application to sensors, hydrogen generators, solar cells, electric capacitors and nonvolatile memory cells.
Dr Mozalev has been a fellow and invited professor at the leading anodizing research laboratories in Japan, Germany, Austria, Spain and Czech Republic thanks to the awards of STA of Japan, JSPS (Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science), AGAUR of Generalitat de Catalunya, DFG, The Max-Planck Society, Marie Curie Actions, SoMoPro program and GACR.
Dr Mozalev has been a member of the International Society of Electrochemistry (ISE), the Surface Finishing Society of Japan and the Anodizing Research Society of Japan (ARS). He has served as a reviewer for the European Science Foundation and for 17 scientific journals of ACS Publications, RSC Publishing, ECS Publishing, Elsevier, Wiley-VCH and IOP Publishing (63 reviews so far made). He was a committee member of 6 international conferences.
Dr Mozalev is the author of 65 papers, reviews and proceedings, 16 R&D reports, over 140 contributions to international conferences including 15 invited lectures and courses, and holds 7 patents and invention certificates (USSR, Japan, Belarus).
